We held Eric's office (VA PRO) Christmas Party at the beautiful Hope Art Gallery in downtown SLC this year. It was a lovely evening with his employees. Celebrating another great year of hard work.

The evening started off with a mocktail and hors d'oeuvres on the main floor of the gallery with time for everyone to see the beautiful private collection of art.

Once everyone had arrived and had mocktails, we moved upstairs for the dinner.
I posted a picture of this peacock painting found in the gallery because when Rachel (our caterer) and I first walked through The Hope we noticed it and wanted all the decor and colors for the dinner to be centered around this piece. Such pretty Christmasy, warm colors. And I love peacock feathers.

Culinary Crafts our favorite caterer ever did a delicious menu for us. Small plates of butternut squash salad, chilean sea bass, beef tenderloin, and a amazing Utah goat cheese with wine poached pears. They did an incredible job, once again.

Then we moved back downstairs for dessert stations, of belgian waffles, with all kinds of dessert toppings, and flaming crepes, and a mini dessert bar

We also had a hot chocolate and raspberry wasil bar so everyone had warm drinks for the carriage rides around downtown SLC and Temple Square. It was a great night with all of our friends. We are so grateful for all the work you guys do, and for the time we get to spend with all of you. You are all awesome!
Merry Christmas VA PPRO!
